|In response to Re: faucet rplacement cost|
: : I recently bought a new bathroom (wide spread)faucet and initially began removing my old faucet. I gave up after I removed both hot and cold fixtures but was unable to remove the main spout. I hired a plumber who charged me $440.96 to finish the replacement. Did I get ripped off? Is that the going rate? He spent just under two hours to complete the job. Any response is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
: $440 ?? You paid that much for 2 hours labor and don't know if you got cheated ?? Didn't you get a estimate? Assuming you bought the faucet --You got ripped- big. That is why people don't call plumbers unless they are desperate ,or rich,or crippled ,or old,or naive. It is the greedy minority that take advantage of these types of people. Always get their hourly labor rate before they come out. If they won't give you a straight answer call someone else. No offense to the honest plumbers out there. To the rotten eggs I say take gas. spud
